This year, I hit the mark where half my vocational life (18 years) has been spent business…and the other half (18 years) has been spent in ministry. Both careers have been full of valuable personal growth, challenges and struggles, and lessons learned. I am grateful for the opportunity to live in both worlds.
Here are a couple of common perceptions:
In Business, it is expected to get stuff done and it’s an unexpected benefit when people are cared for
In Ministry, it is expected that people are cared for and it’s an unexpected benefit when stuff gets done
However, these are misconceptions and they need to be corrected. In order for any organization to be successful:
Stuff must get done
People must be cared for
Which one do you tend to excuse and overlook when it is sacrificed for the other?
Thanks for listening.
